98 Cobra - 2004 Terminator Conversion


Recommended Posts

Selling my 1998 Cobra 2004 conversion.


Project conversion took about 4 months mostly working on it on the weekends only. We spared no expense and really didn't take any shortcuts. Everything on the car for the exception of the chassis, seats and dash was converted to an 04 Cobra. The chassis is an actual 98 Cobra chassis.

We rewired the entire car from the front headlights, engine compartment, interior wiring, along with the matching computer to the matching digital Speedo cluster, which shows the actual engine mileage. The rear wiring is from the 04 donor, along with the fuel tank and emissions canister.

The car has cold AC along with the 04 Cobra Radio/CD console. The switches are functional and operational, which include the defrost, along with the fog lights (need to be installed), and the TRAC system which was disable during tuning.

I installed an AFR gauge pod, which is pictured, but it not longer displays the AFR, which I think it may be a defective prong in the exhaust tube.

Nice job.

Been there done that. I wrecked a 96 Cobra and rebuilt it using a spare body/chassis. I bought a 96 GT body and moved everything over. It also took me about 4 months of evenings and weekend.


I wish I could afford another car. This is exactly what I'd want for my daily driver. Will you take $1200 for it?

Resurrecting this post as I want to sell again to make room for new project. Since last post I've added an 04 cobra IRS with Full Tilt BR bushings, Billsteins coupe shocks and stock springs on the rear. The front got upgraded to a Griggs racing kmember, Griggs a-arms and Griggs Coilovers with Koni DA's. New promotion clutch. Mileage in 71k.

$11k takes it. Willing to trade for race prepped mustang.
